Wonderful way to spend a few hours in Paris if you're into language and linguistics. This is not the average museum where you passively wander exhibits taking pictures and reading the attached cards. This feels more like a study session and in a very good...More

Good little place, but more of a place for kids (older kids) or people who want to learn more about language. I'm really into language so I went, but most stuff there I already knew. For me, really not a place to go in Paris,...More

Its geared to middle school students (maybe). Despie its claim to be multilingual, most everything is European. Almost no Asian or Middle Eastern languages. Canned presentations are juvenile at best.More

This small museum is a find indeed. Over 2 floors it covers a lot of aspects about language, with many interactive displays. We spent nearly 2 hours in there but still couldn't complete it all! Very educational and very suitable for children as well.

This is a private initiative, a low-fi little place stuffed into two rooms and a vast basement in the university quarters of Paris. But it is incredibly well-researched, interestingly presented and illustrates language and languages from all conceivable angles. You might think this a pretty...More

It's so small and quirky, but for language lovers, it is a must see! It is definitely a place you could spend the whole day viewing. I highly recommend it!
